What is Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR)?
Virtual reality (VR) is a computer-generated simulation in which a person interacts with an artificial three-dimensional world via the use of electrical equipment such as special eyewear with a screen or gloves with sensors. The user can have a realistic experience in this simulated artificial world. Augmented Reality (AR) differs from virtual reality (VR) in that it uses graphical overlays to improve the real environment rather than creating a completely immersive experience. VR has many applications in the modern world. For example, If you want to buy a property, virtual reality can transport you there and allow you to walk around before signing any documents. Virtual reality may also put you in the middle of the most severe airplane crashes to gain control of the airplane system if one plans to become a pilot. Virtual reality can be viewed as a condition that exists somewhere between reality and virtual space.
What is Khora?
Khora is a major Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) production studio in Scandinavia, providing cutting-edge material for a variety of applications. Through meaningful collaborations and partnerships, they are investigating the value potential of VR and AR. They operate in a variety of industries and have a thorough understanding of the technology as well as how and why businesses and organizations should engage in these new mediums. They use the best of technology to demonstrate the importance of various mediums.
“Although we’ve been working with virtual reality and augmented reality since 2015, these are still very new mediums. We are convinced that this is a rapidly developing technological field. This technology may find its way into people’s daily life in the next 5 to 10 years. Our goal is to discover the value and beneficial influence that these media can provide. Khora is a member of the Vision Denmark innovation and business association.” says the Co-founder & CEO Simon Lajboschitz.
The name Khora was inspired by a book authored by the philosopher Plato, where Khora was characterized as a state of being and non-being. One of the first products developed by the company was the Oculus Rift’s first developer kit.
Their major goals are related to the healthcare sector given the importance of Virtual simulations in a variety of medical procedures such as pain distraction, exposure therapy, MRI, etc.

Tools for training, simulation, and construction :
Virtual reality or augmented reality simulations may be highly useful in educating professionals in situations when access to equipment is restricted or the cost of making mistakes is too high. By seeing the real machinery and tools in a virtual medium, learning becomes more effective as physical actions will be the same as with real tools and machinery. Thus muscle memory is not affected.
Virtual museums and cultural organizations:
Virtual and augmented reality experiences are the next big thing for museums and cultural organizations across the world to stay up with. Virtual reality in this context can act as a time machine to take viewers into different time zones of history. It endows you with the supernatural power to swap viewpoints and travel through time and space.
One of the most popular healthcare-related products of the company is the virtual MRI. Children undergoing MRI often have to be sedated as they cannot maintain their position steady inside the MRI machine due to anxiety emerging from the sounds. The virtual MRI can be used to acclimatize anxious patients before they actually go for MRI.
